September 29, 2013

We're saddened to announce the passing of regular commenter (and LNMC habitué) lafin gas/luwslips. His RL friend and occasional C&L commenter Sphinx tells us this:

I called the police in his area to check on him and found out that he had passed away from respiratory failure on September 11, 2013 at the age of 64.

He was a wonderful human being who chose to live a very isolated, quirky existence. A huge part of this was submersing himself in music , a subject in which he was very knowledgable. He absolutely loved posting on the music thread every night.

His final email to Sphinx included a link to this video about the folk movement. We honor his memory by posting it here tonight.

Rest in peace, lafin gas/luwslips. Enjoy rock-n-roll heaven.
